    Is the hack that the pool noodle is being held by pressure and not glued?
    The ones I saw online just have them wedged in there. I wonder if double sided tape will stick to a pool noodle?

    Yes. @MedozK suggested it in this thread.

    Also, you can cut a pool noodle with a kitchen knife or scissors (i.e., you don't need a saw), so that might make it easier.

    I'm still using Liquid Nails to fix all the molding the electricians cut while rewiring the knob and tube to be up to code. Maybe three more years, and I'll finish that job. :lol:
    Yea, mine are just wedged in. Work great for me, and it's cheap and takes no time.

    I put together and loaded my Kallax today. I could only find purple pool noodles for now 🤣 I might try to locate some black ones but for $1 each I can’t be too choosy.

    Wow. That's nice^^. I dug through my records and moved em around. Mine are hidden in an enclosed cabinet. How many does each cube hold approx? Looks like 60ish.

    Way more. You can get 30 to 40 in each cubby  X 8 cubbies.

    read it again matt.

    yes loujoe, 50-60 titles maybe less if its newer reissues that double the vinyl.

    Right around there. Some are double LPs and bigger packaging.

    Fun stuff. Sort by alphabetical or by types?
    I started sliding mine in tote bags and try to keep them by types or bands. Then I can take them all out at once. Maybe a little more protection too. 
    I read somewhere about hinged box sets. If the box might get damaged from use, to store the box away from lps to keep it mint.

    I see. 60 seems like a lot then.  Are those just old school 70s singles?

    Alphabetical. It seems easier to pin point the record I am looking for.

    Smart to do alpha. A lot of times I can't find stuff easily. 
    Enjoy. It looks great!

    Thanks. It is nice to finally have them out of crates and off of the floor.

    I do have quite a few that I picked up used. Most of those are late 70’s and early 80’s. Also a friend of mine has a father in law that had a bunch of old records in a storage closet that they were going to throw away.  He let me go through them and pick out what I wanted. I probably ended up with 25-30 records from that.

    Alphabetized for life.

    I think there’s too much stuff that crosses genres that it would confuse me. So pretty much anything that isn’t a VA comp/soundtrack/VGM or a Numero (they look so good next to each other) release gets grouped together.

    Nice!!! My bud was moving. She said she had some records...I went over and she hooked me up with a couple. As I was leaving I walked past the dumpster and saw minor threat (out of step)and a led zep on top of the pile. I turned around. Do you mind if I go in there. Go ahead...her son had a pretty killer collection, all got rained on, but I saved a bunch, sold most to a store and gave him the cash, only 20 bucks but was more happy they didn't get thrown out.  I understand it's hard to cart these around, but I hope at least my stuff gets donated somewhere.
    Always tell people you collect records...it helped my collection grow. For free...

    I do alphabetical, but separate out my pearl jam and related.
